Yankes Top Dodgers in Opener 4-3

Blair’s single in the 12th Decides First World Series Contest Here

The faces were different and the names were different, but the drama and memoires were were the same last night when the New York Yankees beat back the Dodgers in 12 innings as the old rivals opened baseball’s 74th World Series in Yankee Stadium.
